The Orkney 440 is a perfect choice for those looking for a proper little sea boat that is light enough to launch and recover easily. The relatively high freeboard and wide beam give a deep secure cockpit and plenty of stability. Tough and rigid construction is achieved by utilising the buoyancy chambers a part of the structure. The resulting low weight enables the Orkney 440 to plane with as little as 15hp. For serious fishing or family pleasure trips the 440 is the best choice of 14 footers.
